The Top 10 Most Expensive Cars In The World
The most costly cars in the world are so much more than moving. These rolling art pieces encapsulate the preferences of the one percent, and in that universe, flamboyance and swagger take priority over practicality and efficiency. Lifestyle studies aside, these are truly mind-boggling cars, and we’d like to count down our favorites for you here.
10. Zenvo ST1 ($1.2M)
Kicking off our list is less of a car and more of an unchained animal in the ST1. Created in Zealand, Denmark, the Zenvo produces an absolutely offensive amount of power by connecting a 6.8-liter V8 with both a supercharger and a turbocharger. Just how much is offensive exactly? How about 1,104 horsepower and 1,054 pound-feet of torque, all channeled to the car’s rear rings.
9. Ferrari LaFerrari ($1.4M)
Fewer cars on the road are more attractive, and even fewer quicken faster. With a dry weight of fewer than 2,800 pounds, this dragon-like enforcement car quickens from 0 to 60 mph in less than 3.0 seconds, and it’ll dance to 124 mph in under 7. Flat out, it’ll top 217 mph.
8. Pagani Huayra ($1.4M)
The Huayra is both as famous for its odd-sounding name as it is for its face-melting production. Named after the Incan God of Winds, the Huayra (articulated why-rah) possesses an AMG-sourced 6.0-liter V12 with two turbochargers, resulting in 620 hp and a massive 740 lb-ft.
7. Aston Martin One-77 ($1.4M)
Below the vented hood lurks a normally aspirated V12 that relocates 7.3 liters, which is a lot. It delivers 750 hp and 553 lb-ft, which is also a lot. Those numbers give the One-77 the fastest Aston Martin ever made, as this spy chaser will exceed 220 mph in the right conditions. From a standstill, it’ll do 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds.
6. Koenigsegg One:1 ($2.0M)
You can purchase a quantity with $2 million — a remarkably nice house, about 80 Mazda MX-5’s, or the Swedish “megacar” revealed above. A logical intellectual could probably think of a better way to pay your life savings, but mega cars don’t give a damn about logic. Because they’re mega. And after knowing what the car is capable of, $2 million might actually be a steal.
5. Ferrari F60 America ($2.5M)
The supercar is unchangeably identical to the F12, but the Berlinetta isn’t specifically a Fiat Panda, to begin with. Its 6.2-liter V12 beats out 740 glorious hp, enough to drive the car to 60 mph in only 3.1 seconds. The ultra-rare flag-waver listens back to Ferrari’s bespoke past, as the company created several region-specific sports cars in the 1950s and 1960s.
4. Mansory Vivere Bugatti Veyron ($3.4M)
This list wouldn’t be whole without some version of the magnificent Bugatti Veyron. We’re radiating our spotlight on the Mansory Vivere edition here, because not alone is it one of the fastest cars in the world, it’s one of the most valuable.
3. W Motors Lykan Hypersport ($3.4M)
You may remember the Lykan Hypersport from its starring part in the blockbuster Furious 7, where the Lebanese supercar collapsed through not one, not two, but three buildings in Dubai. In a privilege filled with high-end exotics and one-off custom works, the fact that the Hypersport got so much center is a testament to its influence.
2. Lamborghini Veneno ($4.5M)
The car is definitely stunning from every angle, and to this day, we’re not assured it isn’t an alien spacecraft scanning our planet for eventual takeover. It just doesn’t look real. The only thing more extraordinary than the look is the price — a whopping $4.5 million.
1. Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita ($4.8M)
Beneath the lustrous finish lies a 4.8-liter, dual-supercharged V8 with an entire output of 1,004 hp and 797 lb-ft, which means it should have short to no trouble overtaking semis on the freeway. The car’s specs — in both performance and price — are nearly humorous at this point, and just three were ever made.
